For the demand side, consumers used to consider the function of products but now it is focus on consumers taste and choice. There are some main determinants for growth of economic in reality. Meanwhile, the figures for the main determinants act in the UK and then compare with developing country in China.

The main determinants of economic growth are: internal impact of change in productivity and inputs and external effect of alter in international trade, unemployment rate and real gross domestic product (real GDP). The internal aspect of the change in productivity can show how every nation utilize the factors of production not to ahead the diminishing returns. Meantime, inputs are influence the growth of economic which are include land, labour, capital, raw material and technology. Economic growth is decide by the way of improving the quality of fixed land, increasing the amount of skilled or cheap labour, utilizing the capital, consuming depletable or renewable resources and introducing new invention for the technology of research and development.
